credit. according to a report in the "washington post," president obama's economic advisors aand outside experts say the nation's much celebrated housing rebound is leaving too many people hyped, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records that were weakened by the recession. in response, administration officials say they are working to get banks to lend to a wider range of borrowers by taking advantage of taxpayer backed programs, including those offered by the federal housing administration that insure home loans against default. wait a minute. this is the exact tactic that caused the housing bubble and the housing market to crash years ago. is washington ever going to learn from its past mistakes? just another sign that the administration has no idea what they're doing. joining me with reaction, the founder of campens company and ceo of the bab group, real estate analyze, dani babb. the community reinvestment act, wasn't that the government started under jimmy carter, doubled down by bill clinton and increased under clinton that forced b

'm very hopeful that we can get this passed. >> dana milbank writes in "the washington post". obama on guns too little too late. on almost every topic from budget negotiations to national security, washington seems only to act these days in response to crisis if it acts at all. obama errored in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes and energy and immigration and he compounded the error by sending j joe biden to conduct a study. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign to maintain the momentum. mark kelly has been, obviously, outspoken advocate on gun control legislation and he has been going around and buying guns and showing how long it takes to fill out a background check. i think it was like five minutes and 36 seconds, just if you care. if you can wait five minutes and 36 seconds for your gun. >> so i'm hearing behind the scenes there is still a deal that is being worked on universal background checks but yesterday it sound like it might be dead. >> they are still trying to figure ou

'll hear, don, is president obama call for congress in washington, d.c. to do what legislators in colorado have done, which is colorado, the president will say is a frontier state, a state that has a history and respect for gun ownership, but they did take some measures to add restrictions on gun ownership including universal background checks, expanding them and a ban on high sxaft magazine, i believe over 15 rounds. so president obama will say that congress and washington, d.c. should do what colorado has done. of course, they're very different. the legislature in colorado is democratic. where as in washington, d.c. this is obviously the house is republican and there are some questions about whether or not this gun control legislation will be able to get through the senate, because not every democrat is on board and certainly some republicans are not as well. so that's basically his pitch today. >> okay, so that's a political battle here. let's go to the front lines, so to speak. you spent time with agents on the front lines of the nation's battle with gunle hav le havgun. tell us what y

with the outrageously complicated obama care law. according to the "the washington post," some of these navigators are likely to come from unions as well as immigrant service and community service organizations. but here is the reality. nobody, nobody will actually know what the navigators do because there is no objective way to measure advice. the navigators may be paid hourly with senior executives making up to 48 bucks an hour at least that's the federal estimate. again, what do these people actually do? this has the potential to be an enormous reuse, another close sell waste of money. nancy pelosi can't explain obama care. to say that obama care is off to a bad start is the understatement of the century. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. with us david callahan co-founder of demoss co-founder of a progressive organization. that might be a freudian slip there. all right. i don't know whether you know this or not, but i have not been an obama care hater, all right? i would like every american to have health insurance. i think that would be good for the country. i don't wan

control. columnist dana millbank in today's "washington post" points out obama made an impassioned bid this week to revive prospects for gun control legislation but it's difficult to escape the conclusion that his efforts come too late. as dana says harry reid had to drop the plans for legislation on the assault weapons ban, and large clips because the support wasn't there, would that have happened regardless of the president maybe not having been pushing this agenda as he should have been? >> well, i think it would have happened regardless of any president. i mean the truth of the matter is that the nation's attention span is -- we -- it's very thin and we've forgotten pretty quickly. so i think that's why you saw the white house and the president this week sort of on this reminder tour, not just on gun control, but on immigration,age other things. you know, he spent so much time focused on sequestration and he was in israel last week he sort of aimed to bring it back this week and say, hey, we haven't forgotten. these are still my priorities. but you know, congress and washington doe
